Bending creep performance of modified timber

  title={Bending creep performance of modified timber},
  author={Hannah Epmeier and Marie Johansson and Robert Kliger and Matteus Westin},
  journal={Holz als Roh- und Werkstoff},
The present study is a supplement to Epmeier and Kliger (2005), which investigated the effect of three different modification methods (acetylation, modification with methylated melamine resin and heat treatment in vegetable oil) on four material properties (density, modulus of elasticity (MOE), creep deflection and relative creep) and their inter-relations. In this study, another modification method (furfurylation) and four additional material parameters (“relative stiffness”, i.e. MOE/density… CONTINUE READING
